You can’t choose your neighbors. In this brilliant new comedy, cultures and gardens clash, turning well-intentioned neighbors into feuding enemies. Pablo, a rising attorney, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, have just purchased a home next to Frank and Virginia, a well-established D.C. couple with a prize-worthy English garden. But an impending barbecue for Pablo’s colleagues and a delicate disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all-out border dispute, exposing both couples’ notions of race, taste, class and privilege.
The cast of NATIVE GARDENS features Randy Cheramie (Frank), Andréa Morales (Tania) Leslie Nipkow (Virginia), Yamil Rodriguez (Pablo), Hannah Guihur Colón (ensemble), Anna Karina DeLage (ensemble), and Gabriela López Rúiz (ensemble).
The design team includes Joey Moro (scenic design), Melissa Martinez (lighting), Darolyn Robertson (costumes), Clare Marie Nemanich (sound design), Kara Borasch (props), and Ilyanette Bernabel (dramaturg).
